Energy consumption in households fell further in 2019
19 Nov 2020
The energy consumed in housing amounted to around 65 terawatt hours (TWh) in 2019. Consumption fell by good one-half TWh from the previous year. Consumption of indoor living space heating fell by two per cent from 2018 to 2019. The weather was warmer in Southern Finland than in the previous year. The growth in the number and volume of dwellings continued. The share of household appliances in households energy consumption remained at 13 per cent, even though the energy consumption of the appliances grew. The data are based on Statistics Finland's statistics on energy consumption in households.

Description: Statistics on energy consumption in households describe the annual amount and structure of energy consumption related to housing and from which sources energy is acquired for heating residential buildings. Statistics on energy consumption in households are used concerning heating of spaces, domestic water and sauna, as well as household appliances. Consumption of heating energy in spaces is presented in the statistics according to type of building and energy source. Energy consumption of household appliances is divided into consumption of home electrical equipment, lighting and cooking. The same concepts are used in describing energy consumption in households as in other energy statistics.
